Bugs and Thugs was one of my favorites as a kid
8 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Bugs goes to the bank to get a carrot among many in his deposit box. At the same time, Rocky has robbed it and is about to get in his car with Mugsy as the driver when Bugs comes in first mistaking it for a taxi. When Rocky comes in with his bags of money, the rabbit at first thinks it's laundry. He wises up and attempts to call the police at a nearby gas station but is caught by Mugsy before he can complete it. It all results in one of the funniest police captures in cartoon history! This was one of my favorites as a little kid and seeing it today on The Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Vol. 1 brought back great memories of watching this on "Bugs Bunny and Friends" which aired every afternoon at 3:30 pm central time on WRBT-TV, Baton Rouge, La. (It's now WVLA). Kudos once again to Friz Freling.
